Cultus Sabbati/Descent Into The Maelstorm/Buh Records/2011 CD Review

Cultus Sabbati are a band from Norway that plays black metal mixed with experimental ritualistic noise and this is a review of their 2011 album "Descent Into The Maelstorm" which was released by Buh Records.

There is not much in the way of drums on this recording but there are some tribal ritualistic beats being utilized at times throughout the recording, as for the bass playing there is none present on this album>

Rhythm guitars are all slow riffs that utilize a lot of heavy distorted ritualistic noises and there are no led guitars or solos present on this recording, as for the noise effects they are very brutal, dark, ritualistic and evil sounding with a great amount of reverb.

Vocals are a mixture of high pitched black metal screams and ritualistic chanting, while the lyrics are based on an Edgar Allan Poe story that this recording is named after, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and brutal sound to it.

In my opinion Cultus Sabbati are a very good black/ritualistic/noise band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mouth Of The Beast" and "Walls Of The Abyss". RECOMMENDED BUY.
